    • Jeffers started at catcher and went 1-for-3 in Monday's spring training win over Tampa Bay. It was his first game since minor offseason surgery on his throwing elbow. Jeffers underwent a procedure to remove "loose bodies" from his throwing elbow and hasn't been limited early in spring training. Nevertheless, it's reassuring to see him behind the plate and healthy ahead of Opening Day. Jeffers had a strong rookie year and should be part of the mix at catcher for the Twins after hitting .273 with a .791 OPS. His outlook for playing time is uncertain since both he and Mitch Garver are right-handed. However, the Twins have made it a point to give catchers adequate rest, so the duo may split playing time even if not in a traditional platoon.

    • Jeffers recently underwent a minor procedure to remove "loose bodies" from his throwing elbow but is expected to be ready for spring training, manager Rocco Baldelli told the Minneapolis Star Tribune. Baldelli said Jeffers is "essentially back to normal already," so it sounds like a minor injury. Still, he'll be someone to monitor early in spring training. Jeffers had a strong rookie year and should be part of the mix at catcher for the Twins next season after hitting .273 with a .791 OPS. His outlook for playing time is uncertain since both he and Mitch Garver are right-handed. However, the Twins have made it a point to give catchers adequate rest, so the duo may split playing time even if not in a traditional platoon.

    • Jeffers went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in a 3-1 win over the Indians on Friday. Jeffers provided some insurance after taking Shane Bieber deep with two outs in the seventh inning to extend the Twins' lead to 3-0. The rookie has homered in two of his last three games but could see a decrease in playing time shortly as Mitch Garver (side) may be activated from the injured list during in the next week.

    • Jeffers went 2-for-3 with a solo homer and an RBI single in Monday's 6-2 win over the Tigers. Jeffers opened the scoring in the third inning by taking Michael Fulmer deep for his first big-league homer. He added an RBI single in the fourth. The rookie has held down the catching duties nicely since being called up Aug. 20, slashing .265/.324/.353 to go along with three RBI. He should continue to receive the bulk of the time behind the dish moving forward.
